Vivid Dreams a sign of early pregnancy — The Bump

Vivid Dreams a sign of early pregnancy

I have read online women saying that having vivid dreams were a sign that they were pregnant, I guess not only a sign but a symptom. Something about increased hormones causing this to happen.

I have been having really vivid, detailed dreams that feel real and that I can totally recall when I wake up....I'm 9DPO by the way...

Am I crazy to read into this?!?!?! I might be clinging onto this one, but did anyone ever have that eperience and end up pregnant?

Re: Vivid Dreams a sign of early pregnancy

  • I have had really vivid dreams as well.  The one I had last week seemed so real (it was about me seeing my BFP in the bathroom and going to show DH) that I woke up and felt so extremely happy...then realized it was a dream. I got AF that afternoon.  I had another one this past weekend (still had AF) and it also seemed so real (it was about seeing my baby girl's first smile)...and I'm definitely not PG.  Maybe it's true that when you're PG you have vivid dreams, but I also think you have dreams while TTC because it's something you're usually always thinking about.

    This. I had a dream the other day that I had a baby....then it turned into a grasshopper and flew out the window. I hope I don't have dreams like that when I am actually pregnant. It was quite disturbing.

  • I had really vivid dreams when I was pregnant with my DD, however it wasn't until much, much later in my pregnancy. 

    But who knows, maybe that is not the case for you!

  • I would agree it's me reading into nothing!

    But I will say last month when I miscarried I had a very vivid dream the morning I tested positive. I had fallen asleep on the couch that night and I woke up to a dream about getting two lines...I was so excited but then I realized it was a dream...but it was the day of my expected AF so I decided to test...

    Next thing you know I'm starring at two pink lines but I wasn't dreaming anymore...

  • Many things can cause vivid dreams, including pregnancy but unfortunately the only way to know if something is a pregnancy symptom is to find out you are actually pregnant, then look back at your symptoms. I had a dream last night that I had a baby, but I am only 4 DPO so I know that it is not a pg symptom. I think you are just wishful thinking!

    Ditto.  If my dreams were any more vivid, I wouldn't be able to tell the difference between them and real life.  And now that I have babies on the brain 24/7, most of my dreams are about getting a BFP, being pregnant, or giving birth.  So, for me, vivid dreams are not a symptom of pregnancy.

  • I wish this was true, as I have had crazy dreams the last four night. AF is due tomorrow and it looks like she is going to arrive right on schedule.

    Almost anything can be a phantom syptom. Sorry, I don't think this is true.

  • FWIW, as I think I'm unusual in this, crazy, vivid dreams and/or insomnia are PMS symptoms for me.

  • This was one of my phantom symptoms this past cycle, I had noticeably bizarre and much more vivid dreams than usual for 5 nights or so. Didn't turn out to be true for me (and FWIW I haven't read about it being a symptom of pregnancy elsewhere, I definitely thought I was going crazy), but hopefully it means something good for you. Good luck!

  • Phantom symptom that plagues me 24/7. I dreamed lastnight that I was in labour, except I couldn't feel anything. One of the drs came along and gave me an episiotomy 'just in case'. DH was there and I just kept saying 'I hope this is real' apart from the episiotomy part. And ofcourse I woke up to find a nice flat tummy. Argh. GL for you though, if it's not a regular thing for you then maybe it is a symptom

  • I don't think one vivid dream will tell you much, but I can say I had CRAZY vivid dreams for over a week straight, and when I took a test- Positive!  Yay! So i think there is truth in the dream thing :)

  • @keiko2010 That happened to me too. Last week I had BFP dreams one after the other, to which I would come out of one, be disappointed, and then get a bfp in this next one. The last dream was like a montage of all the dreams. It was so weird. I took a test and it was negative.

    You resurrected a thread from almost 3 years ago, to post your Drive By BFP?
    At least they are trying to get creative?

    I've had  vivid dreams about giving birth, and I've never been pregnant.

  • Whenever there's a super necro'ed post like this one, I like to stalk the OP and see if she was actually pregnant. Sure enough, she was!

    I have wacky and extremely vivid dreams many nights, they come and go.  Still not pregnant.  All symptoms are suspect, none can be taken as definitively related to pregnancy or not until you get the positive peestick - obsessing about symptoms is just a huge waste of time.

    ETA  Jeez, the ONE time I don't check the date on the OP

  • I had no vivid dreams for a long time and still nothing I can say I didn't have before I was pregnant

    It's a BOY










  • I know this is a zombie thread, but since it was brought up...

    I read somewhere a long time ago that you're more likely to remember your dreams clearly if you wake up during the dream part of your sleep cycle. I don't know how much truth there is to that, but supposing it is true, I would assume that means your dreams are more "vivid" because your sleep is disturbed, or you're just a light sleeper to begin with. And sleep disturbances would obviously be cause by any number of reasons. 

    If, however, you dream that you peed on a unicorn, and the unicorn turns pink, you're totes preggers. Squee.
